Periodic Reporting for period 1 - AutoRay (New solution for fully automated analysis and reporting of routine musculoskeletal X-rays)
Reporting period: 2019-03-01 to 2019-05-31
Currently, the number of radiologists is insufficient to fill the demand. According to a UK workforce census 2017 report from the Royal College of Radiology, the diagnostic reporting workload has increased 30% in the last 5 years and that there is a shortfall of more than 1000 radiology consultants (open positions)
The objectives of the project are to develop a novel solution to automatically analyze and generate reports describing medical images. The software uses machine learning, combined with advanced image processing (computer vision) to accurately analyze x-ray images of the msk system in a standardized manner.
An automatic report will enable patients to receive diagnosis, and thus potentially treatment, from their treating physician much faster.
